Springing with the Birds!

I love this time of year when color brightens up the garden, starting with the azaleas. The birds love it too as they woo a mate and look for nesting places. Wrens and chickadees visit the tiny houses, and the choices are endless. “How… Continue Reading “Springing with the Birds!”

Spring Green From Two Days in May

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I found my best Spring Green from two outings last year in May. The Pandemic was well underway by then and we were finding solace in the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. The first picture is from… Continue Reading “Spring Green From Two Days in May”

Surprised by Snow

Last week spring was here – maybe even summer – with blue skies, sunshine, and temperatures reaching 60 degrees. But this morning I woke to big, beautiful, sloppy snowflakes falling – winter’s last hurrah I guess. I love the snow, but there’s a time… Continue Reading “Surprised by Snow”

An Iridescent Kind of Morning

Okay I borrowed the word from an Instagram challenge but I thought it fit this morning’s sunshine in the garden. Yes the bike is part of the garden. I had to laugh when I found it planted there by my husband a few years… Continue Reading “An Iridescent Kind of Morning”

Winter Walk into Spring at Lake Wilderness

The snow has come and gone, replaced by wind and rain. But yesterday there was a break in the weather and we headed to Lake Wilderness starting out at the Arboretum where bulbs were blooming and trees were budding. We took a path through… Continue Reading “Winter Walk into Spring at Lake Wilderness”

Let’s Go Visit the Tulip Fields!

There’ll be no Tulip Festival this year and you already know why!  But that doesn’t prevent us from traveling back in time to last year’s festival in Washington’s Skagit Valley, where fortunately I took enough pictures at Roozengaarde to have plenty more to share… Continue Reading “Let’s Go Visit the Tulip Fields!”

Fern Fronds Unfurling

Is there anything that heralds spring in the Pacific Northwest more than fern fronds unfurling? After a week of cold and snowy weather I’m ready. Halfway there! 🙂 For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Spring Scenes. ~ Susanne

The Ducklings of Clark Lake

Last week we thought we’d walk someplace new and discovered Clark Lake Park a short drive from our house.  Though it’s a small park, what it lacks in size and services it makes up for in tranquility and diversity, with 126 acres of meadows,… Continue Reading “The Ducklings of Clark Lake”

Cats Seeking Shelter in the Rainy Northwest and Baseball

After a bizarre winter in the Great Northwest – featuring summer temperatures and record-breaking snowfall – we have now settled into a typical rainy spring. The garden is loving it and new plants are being thoroughly watered in. Cats seek shelter wherever they can… Continue Reading “Cats Seeking Shelter in the Rainy Northwest and Baseball”

A Rainy Day in the Spring Garden

It was inevitable that the real spring would finally show up in the Pacific Northwest.  Where it rains, then it shines, then it blows, then it rains again.  Today was such a day. But in between those rain squalls Benji and I managed to… Continue Reading “A Rainy Day in the Spring Garden”
